This family, originally Danish, was settled
in the county of Durham in the eleventh,
twelfth, and thirteenth centuries. Hutchin-
son, in his History, states that they had as-
sumed the local name of Burse-blades, or
Purse-blades, from residing at Burs-blades,
in the parish of Lanchester, near Durham,
as appears by Bolden Book, and that they
had enjoyed considerable possessions there
under the Bishop of Durham. The first

He was s. at his decease by his son,

* " Marvel," says a writer in the Gentleman's
Magazine, " was an honest republican : he ad-
hered to the principles under which he had en-
tered upon public life, and with stern pride of
heart, and probably ardent hopes of a restoration
of the commonwealth, he retained an uncompro-
mising attachment to his cherished theories of
government. In addition he was a wit and a
satirist ; a spirit that prided itself in exemption
from the prevalent corruption and popular follies,
because these follies and that corruption formed
the butts against whi' L it was his delight to exer-
cise the keen sha! s of his wit, his irony, and his
ridicule." Andrew Marvell was born in 1620 at
Hull, and educated at Trinity College, Cambridge.
He subsequently travelled to Rome, where he
first associated with Milton, who thus describes
his accomplishments in a letter to "the honour-
able the Lord Bradshawe," dated Feb. 1652-3.
" He hath spent four years abroad in Holland,
France, Italy, and Spain, to very great purpose
as I believe and the gaineing of those four lan-
guages ; besides, he is a scholler, and well read in
the Latin and Greek authors ; and no doubt of an
approved conversation, for he comes now lately
out of the house of the Lord Fairfax, who was
generall, where he was entrusted to give some
instructions in the languages to the lady his
daughter." In 1657 Marvel was appointed assis-
tant Latin secretary to the Protector, Milton
being his superior in that office ; and in 1658 or
1659 he was first elected to parliament as one of
the burgesses for his native town, which he con-
tinued to represent for nearly twenty years, until
his death in 1678. His attendance in parliament
was unusually assiduous ; and he maintained a
correspondence with his constituents almost every
post, which is said to be the last instance of that
valuable relation between representatives and elec-
tors. It has also been said that he was the last
representative who received wages from his con-
stituents. For interesting particulars of this un-
bending senator refer to " Dove's Life of Mar-

Sculcoates) he had issue, of whom, his suc-
cessor, Benjamin, alone married. This
Hugh Blaydes was so staunch a loyalist that
in the rebellion of 1745 he raised and sup-
ported a company of volunteers amongst his
own tenants and dependants. He died 9th
April, 1759, aged 74, and was s. by his son,
Benjamin Blaydes, esq. of Melton and
High Paull, in the county of York, b. 5th
March, 1735; baptized 31st March, 1736.
This gentleman was lord of the manors of
Sutton cum Stoneferry, and Paghill, alias
Paull and Thorngumbeld, all in Holderness,
and of part of the manor of Sculcoates.
He was likewise in the commission of the
peace. He m. on the 13th May, 1775, at
Marylebone church, Middlesex, Kitty, se-
cond daughter and co-heiress of Christopher
Scott, esq. of Aldborough, in Holderness,
justice of the peace for the county of York,
(by Anne, daughter of Samuel Clark, esq.
of Askam Bryan, in the same shire), and
dying 29th October, 1805, was $. by his son,
Hugh Blaydes, esq. of High Paull, in
Yorkshire, and of Ranby Hall, in the county
of Nottingham. This gentleman was born
at Melton, 9th August, 1777; he m. 19th
March, 1800, at Ripon Minster, Delia-
Maria, second daughter of Colonel Richard

ROCHE, GEORGE, esq. of Granag-h Castle, in the county of Kilkenny. This
gentleman, who claims the ancient Irish peerage of Fermoy, inherited the estates and
representation of the Roches of Limerick, at the decease of his brother, in 1 8*25-



The family of Roche of Limerick, has
branched from that of Castletown- Roche, in
the county of Cork.

John Roche, of Castletown-Roche,* de-
scended from the Viscounts Fermoy, was a
member of the Catholic Parliament or
Council held at Kilkenny during the civil
wars, and his name appears as such to the
declaration of the Irish Roman Catholics in
1641. His eldest son,

Robert Roche, espoused Juliana O'
Moore, daughter of Alexander O' Moore,
of Ballina, in the county of Kildare,f and
was s. by his eldest son,

Stephen Roche, known by the designa-
tion of Dov, or Black, from his complexion,

* For the Roche family generally, see Nichol's
Rudiments of Honor, 8vo. 1726, article Fermoy,
where its descent from the sovereign houses of
Europe is deduced.

t Of a very ancient family, and allied by inter-
marriage -with that of the Earls of Kildare. Alex-
ander O'Moore was next brother to the celebrated
Rory or Roger O'Moore, who, according to
Hume, was one of the chief promoters of the re-
bellion of 1641, but acquitted by the same his-
torian of any participation in the massacre of that
year. His birth, influence, and talents are placed
in a very conspicuous light by Doctor Lingard ;
see also Hume, and Warner's History of the Irish
Rebellion, (4to. 1767) page 25, where it is stated
that the popular adjuration at the time was —
" God— Our Lady and Roger O'Moore help us!"

whose estate, already injured by compo-
sition in the time of Cromwell, was entirely
forfeited under William III. Compelled
in consequence to leave the county of Cork,
he retired to Kilrush, in Clare, and after-
wards took up his abode at Pallas, in the
county of Limerick, in the vicinity of his
brother-in-law, William Apjohn, esq. He
m. Anastasia, elder daughter and co-heir of
Thomas Lysaght, esq.J (the other co-heir,
Catherine, was the wife of Mr. Apjohn) and
was s. by his son,

John Roche, esq. b. in 1688, who wedded
Anne, youngest daughter of Philip Stac-
pole, esq.§ of Mountcashell (the fee of
which estate is now in Thomas Roche, esq.)
Kilneen, and Kilcoman, in the county of
Clare, (by his wife, Christian, daughter of
John Creagh, of Ballyvolane, in the same
shire, colonel in the Irish army, anno 1642),
and had, with other issue,
i. Stephen, his heir,
n. John, who m. Miss Harold, cousin
of General Harold, of the Saxon ser-
vice, and had a daughter,

Mary-Anne, who wedded John
Meade, esq. of Limerick, and
was mother of Captain Roche
Meade, of the 21st regiment,

% This gentleman in his passage to England,
on his route to the University of Oxford, during
the short war of 1665, was captured by a French
privateer, and carried into France, where he be-
came a convert to the Roman Catholic religion.
Incurring thus the displeasure of his father, he
was disinherited, and the estate of the family left
by that gentleman to a younger son, the grand-
father of the first Lord Lisle (of Ireland).

§ Philip Stacpole was son of James Stacpole
and Christian, daughter of Denis M' Malum, of
Clonagh, one of the most ancient families of
Clare. Three of Philip Stacpole's brothers fell
at the battle of Aughrim, fighting under the ban-
ner of their legitimate sovereign, James II. He
died himself in 1714, aged seventy years, after
serving as high sheriff for the county of Clare,
being the last Roman Catholic, prior to the
penal laws, who filled that office. The present
Earl^of Limerick enjovs some of the estates of th;s
family, acquired by the marriage of his ancestor
with a co-heiress of the Stacpoles.

eminent banker, and his free and

strongest attestation of homage that
his fellow citizens could have paid to
public virtue, and private worth. He
resides in Limerick, and his gardens
there, unique in design and construc-
tion, have long attracted the attention
of travellers. (See Fitzgerald's
History of Limerick.)
